EL KAPITAN has recently acquired the revolutionary NEXO 45N-12 which is the world’s first line monitor, bringing all the benefits of line array technology to the stage.
Unlike a conventional high frequency waveguide in which the exit is rectangular, the NEXO monitor’s waveguide forms a “smile” enabling cabinets to be linked together to form arrays with no interference between wavefronts. Now there is a single monitor reference covering the needs of all musicians, scalable for wider coverage and higher SPLs.
The 45N-12 delivers very high headroom before feedback, and focuses coverage only where it is needed, resulting in lower acoustic power on stage. SPL and frequency response are consistent up to 2.5 metres back.
An ingenious magnetic locking system joins multiple monitors together to form arrays. The compact, low profile design is less conspicuous than conventional monitors (ideal for live TV production), and the 45N-12 features a non-slip base with a skid system and ergonomic handle for easy repositioning on stage.
